hey guys another random question for you today.
if you were to ship your boat from mainland USA to Europe
what sort of customs
would you have to deal with? lets say EU in general. i have read some people say you have to pay import
tax or vat or something while others you don't live there so you don't pay tax. what is it?
reading this i don't know if i missed something but i think this is more along the lines of you cruising to the destination
and not shipping
the boat there
Some Frequently Asked Questions about the rules for private boats - European commission
"A boat is temporarily imported into the EU and not into one of the constituent Member
States. Thus it can move from one Member
State to another with no further customs
formalities during the 18 month period allowed."
what are your thoughts or the rules that you know. personal experience?
